Blackberry and Ridecell have announced a collaboration to bring a next generation fleet operations and ADAS data platform to automotive OEMs via the BlackBerry IVY™ intelligent vehicle data platform. The integrated solution would enable OEMs to provide fleet operators with the tools they need to turn fleet management insights into automated actions that include responding to maintenance and diagnostics alerts, automating vehicle access control, and vehicle disablement if stolen, along with generating crash analytics reports to satisfy government regulations.
Ridecell’s Fleet IoT Automation Platform is the leading platform powering digital transformation and automation for fleet-driven businesses. With BlackBerry IVY, OEMs would be able to easily deploy Ridecell solutions directly to the vehicle in real-time to unlock new revenue streams and save on data connectivity. BlackBerry IVY enables automakers to unlock rich insights from vehicle data without significant connectivity or cloud storage costs through a scalable, cost-effective, car-to-cloud platform that provides developers with a consistent and secure way to analyze sensor data.
The collaboration also covers Ridecell’s AI-powered NEMO Data Platform integration with BlackBerry IVY. NEMO analyzes data from vehicle sensors and driving history to understand critical events, including accidents. OEMs can also take advantage of NEMO to advance their assisted driving systems to improve safety as well as comply with the recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ruling on crash analytics, as the platform automatically generates accident reports in minutes. With BlackBerry IVY, NEMO could use in-vehicle computing to derive real-time AI insights and to filter for scenarios of interest, saving on connectivity and cloud costs for the OEMs.
